eCommerce Readiness Assessment
The seven criteria are weighed on a scale of 1–10, where 1 is poor in all phases, and 10 is state of the art. The resulting score should be an accurate representation of an OEM’s preparedness of the evaluation criteria in relation to a digital sales channel.
Note: there is no ‘ideal’ score to achieve; the readiness assessment is merely a method to define a manufacturer's level of preparedness.
Importance of Conducting an Assessment
The eCommerce website is representative of the manufacturer, and its level of quality will reflect the manufacturer’s reputation. Without conducting an eCommerce readiness assessment, an OEM risks overlooking criteria within their business that are essential to the success of their eCommerce store.
Through the completion of an eCommerce readiness assessment, a manufacturer will understand the areas of their business model that must be addressed and adapted to fit this new demographic of buyers.
